This came from an old magician’s estate purchase. It was probably part of a set that when finished you switched in this Hot Rod so it could be examined as both sides are the same with six gold gems.
Maybe someone has a use for this.
Selling as is.
The rod measures 3-1/2 inches long , 3/8 inches wide, and about 3/16 inches thick.
Comes with the orange cloth holder as pictured.
